Biographical Info

Dr. Allegra Cummings is a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist and has maintained a thriving OB/GYN practice in NYC since 2002. While she is interested in all aspects of the specialty, she has a special interest in supporting women who choose vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC).      

Dr. Cummings received her undergraduate education at Barnard College, Columbia University, in New York City. She earned her medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx and was active in the Student National Medical Association, serving as Regional Director for New York and New Jersey. Dr. Cummings completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at St. Luke’s - Roosevelt Hospital in NYC (now part of Mount Sinai). During her residency she was awarded the David B. Crawford Prize for professionalism and leadership. She also was a finalist for a teaching award presented by the medical students at Columbia University. In 2011, while Dr. Cummings was a faculty attending, the obstetrics and gynecology residents at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital chose her as their best teacher, and she is the recipient of the National Faculty Award of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
